Friday Favorites: Thanksgiving Tablescapes

Today we are officially under the two week mark until Thanksgiving! Are you hosting this year? If so, do you have your table planned? I’m not hosting, so there will be no tablescaping for me, which is probably for the better because that is a lot of hard work! Instead, I decided to look through all the gorgeous fruits of everyone else’s labor and put together my favorites in this post. That counts as work, right? 🙂

Catch up + CMA awards

Happy November! I can’t believe we’re in the final two months of 2014. Time continues to amaze me at how quickly it flies.

While it’s not the traditional awards season, I’m so excited that this Wednesday is the Country Music Association (CMA) Awards!

I love this awards show and am really looking forward to seeing my favorite country music singers perform. Especially the Zac Brown Band and those boys from Florida Georgia Line. Love them!

Also – it’s cold. The temperature has been in the 40’s in Northeast Ohio the past couple of days, and I’m none too happy about it. However, if there is one good thing about chilly weather, it’s cooking for chilly weather.  So, this week I’ll be cooking for chilly weather and country music: BBQ Coca-cola Ribs and chipotle mashed sweet potatoes.
